Book / Commentary

The Power of Now - Eckhart Tolle
One of the best books I've read about spirituality and personal growth. The author knows how to capture very well our weaknesses and fears, and teaches us an effective method to leave them behind. Written in a successful question-answer format, is a book that will captivate you and surely will be part of your inprescindibles.
Practicing The Power of Now - Eckhart Tolle
Continuation of the previous. It is a summary focused on the daily practice of meditation and personal growth. An indispensable work in any modern library and above in a reikian library. If you liked The Power of Now, it also helps you a lot.
Stilness Speaks - Eckhart Tolle
This book is written like the ancient Sutras. Short sentences that aim to reach the soul directly without going through the mind. If you are involved in a journey of personal growth and inner search this book will thrill you and help you to get a little more within you.
Essential Reiki - Diane Stein
Comprehensive book on Reiki. Includes information of all levels, symbols, energy exercises and more. And his unique history with Reiki. I recommend not to buy it until you have completed Reiki Level III. And if you do buy it before do not read the chapters in the levels that have not completed. All reikian should read this book at least once.
Tantra, The cult of the Feminine - André Van Lysebeth
Perhaps the best book that has fallen into my hands on Tantra. Very interesting and very informative. Since the discovery of the Indus Valley civilization, even sexual postures, mantras, meditation, techniques to enhance the sexual experience for both men and women.
The multi-orgasmic man - Mantak Chia
The multi-orgasmic woman - Mantak Chia
The multi-orgasmic couple - Mantak Chia
This is the book where we explained everything we would have had to explain about sex but never told us. Since most animal to the most spiritual. Transforms your sex life in a sacred act of approaching to God. 

Conversations with God - Neale Donald Walsch

A simple man who has not lucky in his life writes a angry letter to God. He do not expected  that the same God would answer him. Fascinating book, full of good humor and good vibes. Volume I is the most interesting. The II is a bit of a pain and III says funny things.

The Alchemist - Paulo Coelho

When a person really desires something, the whole universe conspires so that you can realize your dream. Just learn to listen to the dictates of the heart and decipher the language that is beyond words. A very beautiful book about life, death, magic and divine. We should all read it once in life.

A New Earth - Eckhart Tolle

Another title over this great modern master. For those who have time practicing the teachings of this master this book will give you new insights and new teachings. If you have not read anything by this author, start first by "The Power of Now". It will be easier to you.

Teach yourselve to meditate - Eric Harisson

Excellent book on meditation. Eric Harrison explains his personal experience with meditation. In it you will find well explained different meditation techniques from watching the breath to recite Mantras.

Tibetan book of living and dying - Sogyal Rimpoché

This book is a compendium of Buddhist wisdom. The author talks about meditation, mantras, death and what happens after death. He also recounts his many experiences accompanying people to die. Sooner or later death comes to us all, we get better than being prepared.

Tao Te Ching

Ching - Lao Tse

The Taoist book par excellence. It contains a series of poems designed to reach beyond the thinker, to get to that space of inner stillness and awake, as we read and leaving to read, the inner dimension of peace. It works for me very well for meditative reading, and if you accompany it with singing bowl it will be superb!

Many Lives Many Masters - Brian Weiss

Brian Weiss was a renowned psychiatrist that one day gave to know to the world a strange story about one of his patients, Catherine. Apparently, in a hypnosis therapy, Catherine was able to access to memories of previous lives. And not only that, she realized that the experiences in their past incarnations conditioned the present. Brian Weiss discovered how to heal in this life remembering and understanding previous. See this story in this fascinating book.

I Ching - Anonimus

Another Chinese holy book. This book describes all the alchemical process of transformation of energy in its different states to reach perfection. It is written very cryptically, for most people will be very difficult to understand. Can also be used as an oracle as it contains all possible variations.

The Crystal Bible - Judy Hall

Excellent book on crystals. In it you will find a wealth of gems, with explanations for each, photos (and photos are the stones that you find when you go to buy them) and so much more. Apart speaks of forms, window cleaning, and loading, etc.. A very complete book.

Bhagavad Gita - Anonimus

To say in one way, this book is like the Bible of the Hindus. Probably his most holy book. It is a very beautiful book, but written in an obscure language. If you are undergoing a process of personal growth do not forget to have a look on it.

The Bible - Several Authors

A classic of Western culture. Not all wisdom is in the East, here in the West we also have good evidence of this. As is usual in the ancient sacred books, it is written in a very cryptic language. And although it has been misinterpreted and manipulated for centuries The Bible contains many good lessons to be learned in the modern world.

Island - Aldous Huxley

A journalist shipwrecked on a strange island, its habitants have a true spiritual life. A description of what could be a utopia, or what could become a reality. A fascinating book and a high literary level. Do not miss it.

Wheels of Life - Anodea Judith

A very comprehensive book on Chakras and energy anatomy. Each Chakra is very well explained and also includes tips and exercises to harmonize and unlocking the chakras. It also contains numerous illustrations. Should not miss in the library of a reikista.
